Not sure if this is the appropriate forum, but thought it might be. Hypothetically speaking, which USFL teams could have survived and how would the league have evolved? Of the list below, I think Baltimore, Jacksonville, Memphis, Tampa Bay, Houston and San Antonio would have had the best chance to survive. As I recall, there were no NFL teams in Memphis, Baltimore, Jacksonville, Houston and SAntonio at that time, and the Tampa fan based wasn't nearly as strong as it is today. SAntonio could have merged with Houston to strengthen their ownership team as some point. Birmingham would be a bit of a wildcard...would the USFL eventually move them to a larger market? The USFL teams are below. If the USFL would have survived, and won more than a #4 in their anti-trust suit, what would the USFL look like today (markets/teams) and would the NFL be as powerful today?
